The Labour councillor who gave British war dead the middle finger attended the jubilee celebrations over the weekend and sat directly behind Princess Charlotte, just feet away from two heirs to the throne.  Cllr Iman Less attended the event as a guest of her Labour colleague, Cllr Hamza Taouzzale, who is currently the Lord Mayor of Westminster.  Last month Cllr Taozzale became the borough's  youngest ever lord mayor - at 22 - and also the first non-white and Muslim recipient of the title.  He confirmed Cllr Less's attendance in a tweet (see below).

Cllr Less appeared to be having a great time and even stood for the national anthem.  She managed to bag a seat for the world to see and was closer to the royals than Boris Johnson, Keir Starmer and Sadiq Khan.  Sitting on her right was the daughter of Princess Anne, Zara Tindall, and the councillor giggled as Zara teased her nephew Prince George.

Earlier this year it was revealed that she had posted a photograph of herself making an obscene gesture towards the Guards Crimean War Memorial in Westminster.  She also shared a video applauding the BLM vandal who attempted to set fire to a Union flag on the Cenotaph.  Despite the revelations, Less was allowed to proceed as a Labour candidate in last month's local elections and was elected a councillor for the Maida Vale ward in Westminster.

Despite her election and presence among the elites, Cllr Less continues to shy away from social media and her Twitter and Facebook accounts remain locked down after her controversial posts were exposed.
